When I saw the Stampin’ UP! Gift of Hope Stamp Set in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, I was smitten. The church, the the floral spray, and the sentiments are wonderful. Definitely an Easter Stamp Set but I see wedding and encouragement, too. I can see adding in sentiments from other stamp sets along with the “Wishing you the blessings of…” love, joy, peace, a happy birthday, a happy graduation…
I like the clean and simple design of the stamp set. I made an Easter Card with my first inking:)
I used the new Messages Dies to cut out the word Easter. I then punched out and cut down a Daffodil Delight tag using the Classic Label Punch and mounted the sentiment on it.
The Messages Dies are going to be a great tool in my die collection…so many dies in one place. Just put the die over any sentiment from any stamp set you have until you find one that fits!
Not only can you use it with all your other stamps, it is bundled with Many Messages Stamp Set!
Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

I used two Sale-a-bration Free Gifts with a $50 purchase on this card. The Approaching Perfection Stamp Set and the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper.
I used the Hippo Happiness Bundle. I just thought the balloons were perfect. I also used the Banners Pick a Punch for the sentiment. The 6″ x 6″ Oh So Ombre DSP comes in four colors- Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose, and Blackberry Bliss- all with Basic White, too. You can see the Ombre Effect above.
The Approaching Perfection Stamp Set is super cute for birthdays- a good one to grab for free during Stampin’ UP! Sale-a-bration 2021! See all the free gifts HERE.
I could not wait to play with the Stampin’ UP! Handsomely Suited Bundle. I used the NEW Double Oval Punch, too. The bordering oval is not actually scalloped so it’s great for masculine cards!
It’s a great bundle with a lot of fun ways to use it. I feel like I just made the simplest card with it on my first try out of the gate. I keep looking at the samples in the catalog and on Pinterest and can’t wait to do some more cool things with it! Here is a video showing off the bundle…
Love the classic necktie…
and the fun bow tie! There are actually two bow ties in the stamp set!
The scored pinstripes on the suit and the stitched detail on the shirt really add texture to the card. That strip the buttons sit on is also a die for suspenders.
The scoring really looks cool in person!
